Chapter 16.  Score Editing  >  Working with Chords

Working with Chords

You might have a harmony happening in your staff. You might also have a piano or guitar part with chords played as a harmonic rhythm track. In both cases, you can choose to add a chord symbol over the track by selecting the track and then clicking on the Make Chords button in the tool strip, as discussed in the previous sections of this chapter. After your chords are created, chances are you will want to tweak them, because Cubase might not interpret them properly all the time.

Before you start creating chords, it is a good thing to set your chord display preferences in the Scores > Global Settings > Chord Symbols dialog box, as discussed earlier. What you set in this dialog box determines how the chords are displayed on the score and in the Chord Edit dialog box. For example, if you set the Major chord type to display MA7 rather than maj7 or simply j7, the MA7 appears in the Chords dialog box when you edit the chord. The chords you create after setting your preferences follow the rules you set here.
